Lovely setting but food very poor. All dog burgers way overcooked & far far to many herbs added. So much so that's all you could taste. Funnily enough (being dog burgers) all gave theirs to one of our group for her dog as pretty much unpalatable for humans. Salmon penne very ordinary. On the plus side cheese platters & desserts were extremely good.
All mains may have looked the part but woeful on eating.

We had been here before and had a fantastic wine tasting, so had high expectations for lunch. When we finally made it there we were very disappointed to say the least.
The service was a joke, all of the wait staff looked like kids on their summer holiday, which I don't mind at all. Although they had no smiles no voice and just didn't know what they were doing.
The food.... Well it was awful. To put it bluntly.
We had two platters. $30 each. The 'ploughmans' consisted of a few pieces of bread, with a few olives and some awful meatloaf,
That was it!!! Then the other one wasn't much better.
After having some incredible platters on Waiheke. We were shocked.
I have given the review 2 stars because we like the sparkling wine. None for the food!!!

I have been to Peacock sky 3 times in the last few weeks (Oct - Dec) for different events, wine tours and just lunch.
The service here is amazing they know how to look after you. If you want a great day out with fantastic personable service then peacock sky is where you want to me.
Oh and they do bloody awesome sangria!!!!
Look forward to my next visit!

Wow, went there on Saturday 15th September in a group of 6. We had booked as their new tasting room had just opened and there was a new menu as well. The place was fully booked and the atmosphere was buzzing. Made friends with people at the table next to us as we were all looking at each other's platters that were arriving on various tables. They were LADEN with food, really yummy. We ordered two Beagle Bagel Baby platters and an Italian Greyhound. Love how all the platters are all dog based names - everyone ate them all, we even saw yummy desserts go to the table next to us but were too full from the platters to order dessert. The wine is excellent, we all did the food and wine pairing / tasting before our platters. A really good idea so you can choose your favourite wine with your food.
Service was fantastic, our wine glasses were topped up and my rose was placed in the fridge to keep cold between glasses. The staff were always asking for feedback and were genuinely friendly and helpful - even asking where we had come from and suggesting other things to do while on the island. I would absolutely recommend this vineyard as a great experience if you're looking at choosing a vineyard to go to on Waiheke. We stayed a good three hours on a fabulous day! Especially recommended for the high standard of food, service and beautiful wines. I'll be back!

We arrived at Peacock Sky with high expectations…unfortunately our overall experience was extremely under whelming. The service at best was comical; the food was below average and for simple cuisine overpriced. Waiheke, as a destination for a long lunch experience has an array of fabulous vineyards with impeccable food and service…. Peacock Sky is not worthy of its competition. They need vast improvement to be able to compete with their rival vineyards.
I would not recommend this vineyard as a place to experience.
